For a non-academic vision of European history
The richness and diversity of European cultures constitute an extremely rich heritage for the creation of a European identity, the main objective for the construction of a peoples' Europe.
Personal stories teach us the importance of the details to get an anthropological view of places and social behaviours. At the same time, today there is a need to save everything that belongs to recent memory and that is not yet history.
What are Home Movies?
Home movies consist of film material from the recent past, old reels of family film in 8mm, super8, 16mm and 9.5mm formats. These reels are often forgotten, confined to dusty attics or closed drawers.
The Europe Home Movies Net Project
The project aims to produce and distribute cine documentaries linked to the European identity produced by filmmakers from different European countries using material from home movie archives.
The project consists of:
- A public tender to select 12 filmmakers from all over Europe.
